convo

by Amber

There has definitely been an abundance of people on campus this week, and it's a delight! Well, not if I'm looking for a parking spot, but you get the point. Mid-Winter Convocation takes place each January here at Luther, and today (as the staff photographer) I got to take in a morning full of worship, lecture, and reunions.

I bumped into President Bliese on my way into the OCC and he graciously participated in another one of my obnoxious videos. Thanks President Bliese!

On a side note, I'm a huge fan of Dr. Mark Allan Powell, so seeing him in person, taking his picture, and listening to him speak to a chapel full of eager listeners was a real treat for me. If you're around these next few days, please don't hesitate to stop in and take part in convo. All are welcome. The chapel is nearly full now, but if we have to, we'll bring in some additional seating and make room!

It wouldn't be right to end this post without mention of the people of Haiti who were devastated by a 7.0 earthquake yesterday. The thoughts and prayers of the Luther community go out to those who have lost loved ones, are trapped, missing family, and scared. Prayers of praise for the survivors of such a tragedy. We are also praying for the safe return of four of our fellow seminary students who were visiting there, and are reported to be safe.
